Description

Discover the rural romance of one of Italy's most fabled regions as you venture into the sun-kissed hills of Tuscany. Leave Rome behind for a day spent soaking in the scenery in Montepulciano, dining on Tuscan cuisine, tasting Brunello at an authentic Montalcino vineyard, and visiting historic sights like the Sant'Antimo Abbey.

Hop aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned coach and ride out of the city and into the rolling hills of Tuscany, listening as your guide shares facts and stories about this storybook Italian region along the way. Stop in the ancient village of Montepulciano, where you can stretch your legs with a walk among pre-Roman ruins and picturesque town plazas.

From there, continue on to the medieval stone church of Sant'Antimo Abbey, which sits nestled in a valley. Admire the simple, centuries-old architecture to an evocative and peaceful soundtrack of Gregorian chanting before making your way to an atmospheric farmhouse set among the vineyards—the perfect spot for a leisurely Italian lunch. Dine on 3 courses of local fare and sip 5 different wines from the region, including the famed Brunello di Montalcino.

After lunch, ride to the captivating Renaissance village of Pienza, where you have some time to explore, snap photos, and shop for artisan treats like pecorino cheese, balsamic vinegar, and wine. As the afternoon winds to a close, kick back on the coach for the comfortable and relaxed return ride to Rome.
